THIS EPISODE: The Game Convention! and Father's Day!
In the car, Jason and I head to Columbus Ohio to get our 'geek
on' at the game convention. We're meeting JT at the Convention
Center and he is the original game geek. In fact, it's his fault
that I am currently addicted. It's my fault that Jason is addicted.

cooperative board games and the philosophical implications of each.

unexpectedly and throws around Silver ointment. Tabby and Joe show
up too! Turbo makes a big announcement about her new adopted
The spider comes up again in conversation because Andrew is
paranoid. Grandma Turbo explains how to get rid of spiders. Andrew
offers his own method of pest disposal. Tabby offers her rules for
showering with spiders.
